Despite having retired from tennis long back, Henri Leconte is still in the news for his on-court antics.

Known for his poker face sense of humour, the former French star was back at it during a legends doubles match at the World Tennis Challenge in Adelaide earlier this week.

Partnering Mats Wilander against Mansour Bahrami and Robby Ginepri, Leconte was unhappy with the chair umpire’s decision.

Leconte then asked the ump to exchange roles as the latter came down to show off his tennis skills – all in jest. And guess what? They both were pretty impressive in each other’s skills.

Wilander and Leconte went on the win the match 7-6 (9).

Interestingly, Leconte had done something similar during a legends doubles clash at the Australian Open a few years back.
